Why consider teaching as a career?

Teaching: The Best Kept Secret!

Nearly half of STEM majors have an interest in becoming a teacher. Yet, our nation has a severe shortage of math and science teachers. Research shows that faculty and students have deeply held but often misinformed perceptions about the teaching profession.

There is a national shortage of middle and high school math and science teachers. The need is even greater in school districts across Kentucky, especially in EKU's service region of eastern Kentucky. Getting your degree in teaching, especially middle and high school math and science teaching, virtually guarantees you job placement in Kentucky upon graduation.
